Before all that comes Neptune regatta, with a big programme which starts with over an hour of activity on Good Friday, and carries through to Saturday.
The men’s senior single sculls should provide a highlight. Michael Maher of Commercial and Sam McKeown of Portadown clash in a quarter-final on Saturday morning, with Sam Toland of UCD or Colm Dowling of Commercial awaiting the winners. On the other side of the draw, Damien Kelly of Garda and Declan O’Connor of St Michael’s clash, with Ian Hurley of Trinity or Andrew Griffin of UCD awaiting the winner.
Trinity divide their forces for a Trinity A v Trinity B final of the men’s senior eights. The women’s senior eights final promises a test for Trinity from Portora from Enniskillen.
The Commercial regatta on Sunday starts at 9.30am.
